DECEMBER, IS99. 



Stahtbrodi and Hoff, assisted by the 
ra of me Associated BUI Fost- 
i. have decided that the "The BI1I- 
ard" is a paper Dot published in tbe 
est of tbe bill posters; It Is work- 
■gainst their best interests. "The 
11 board" publishes tips for bill post- 
«, so that they may obtain work di-

id alack, for the cowardly instiga- 
rs who were afraid of a fair open 



lers began to see that the is- 
olation and tbey as members were 
ing made but a catspaw for the 



of "The Billboard" than for many 
□nths. Many more would be found 
it not for the blackmailing 



ws of that association, but in this 
se or any other where the law is 



Hen in every walk of life, no 
what their business run across, not 
only run across in fact, but are hunted 
up by men who are seeking to get 
something for nothing. The railroad 
■ overrun with 
i that they are 
entitled to a free ride In the compan- 
les's cars; the proprietors of theaters 
are beseleged by persons who give 
reasons unheard of by the uninitiated 
why tbey should occupy the best seat 
in the bouse, the pleasure resort and 
fair managers find bnndre 
and nothougbt of relations— In fact, 
every man who has anything worth 
having or has it in bis power to confer 
favors of any kind, is sure to be the 
object of unscrupulous men's designs. 
This system of complimentary tickets 
has become so universal that it Is 
looked upon as one of the necessary 
evils of higher civilization. If the sys- 
tem of Imposture and false representa- 
tion stopped with dead-head tickets it 




make a short cut to wealth. 



tions have been formed In the Imagin- 
ation of one man or clique of men 
which offer false inducement for the 



priatlon. The Publicity Department "^j * do*;- ■ Tb» 

has relied mainly upon free reading ein-r dry eoodi boi. t*itgn 

notices in country newspapers and in "oufd luro^-'whfr"? mj ( 

trade magazines. True posters were b 'pnr'^'.al^tr i bad ■ ii

same principle of "skimp" was appar- 
ent. What a poor plan It has been we 
can see from the results, or rather, 
non-results. The Eiposltion has been 
a financial failure, and we trust that 



their net. The disbonest aims of these 
associations are eventually found out, 
and then people wonder how they 
could hare lived so long. For the 
benefit of our distributor readers we 
will say that there Is one thoroughly 



one that lias tbe full 
trust of advertisers all over the world 
— The International Association of 
Distributors.
